The Bangalore Astronomical Society (BAS) is a registered, non-profit amateur astronomy organisation based in Bangalore, India.


The Society grew out of a community on a popular social networking site and collaborated with other e-groups to come together as an organisation. The society had been functioning informally for months before it registered formally on Nov 6th, 2006.

Objectives and Activities

The group intends to create a base for all amateur-astronomy related activities and to popularise astronomy as a science. The group meets up monthly and conducts observing sessions and public skywatch sessions on a regular basis. The society also conducts Telescope-making workshops, Sessions and courses for School children. Further Information about the club's activities are available on the Activities page.
